We’re not entirely sure who Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is arguing with in this tweet or who she believes is holding her and others to a higher standard but her list of accomplishments made this editor giggle.
Just a little.
Granted, she does say it’s only ‘some’ of them …
To all those saying we “haven’t accomplished anything,” here’s *some* of 2018:
1. Won primary while outspent 10-1
2. Pushed #GreenNewDeal to natl convo
3. Shone new lvl transparency to gov
…all before swearing in.
Admit you hold us to a higher standard than others & move on.

- Eh. A Democrat beat a Democrat.
- What, she thinks no one has ever heard of a Green Deal before?
- Thinking she meant ‘shown’ BUT we suppose she could be claiming she was shining a light on the govt or something so giving her the benefit of the doubt. Plus we don’t want people complaining that we’re mean to her or something.

You're so cute, with your delusions of persecution…

Baby steps, people.
Which all equals nothing.

Her supporters are trying to help her … think she’ll listen?
You don't need to over explain yourself at this point.
The DC talkinghead gossip machine is insatiable.
That's what got Senator Warren in trouble, making it too much about her.
You won, McCaskill lost, end of the story.

Those are not accomplishments that affect anyone but you

Oh, and some wisdom from Geraldo Rivera:
Admire all you’ve accomplished. Historic, strong and I’m proud. One thing; you don’t have to respond to every knuckle headed doubter or naysayer. It wastes valuable creative time & seems defensive. Other than that, have fun and kick ass.

In other words, Alexandria put the Twitter DOWN.
